My freshman year, Professor Azar was assigned as my academic advisor. She is quite versatile in this role because, as she explained, it is her goal to be the best possible advisor to fit the diverse, personal needs of each of her advisees. I was her first advisee to graduate, and I can vouch that without her exceptional leadership, I would have been extremely frantic during the many important academic decisions I made during my time at Furman.

Maegan has taught me how to be professional and involved. She’s taught me how to work to achieve my dreams. She’s taught me to be humble without apologizing for my ambition. And she didn’t need a book to do it, because I watched her lead by example every day.

Maegan honestly cares about every student she teaches. She makes the highest effort to personalize her teaching style to cater to every student’s strengths and weaknesses. After spending 4 years at Furman, I have never met a teacher as caring, adaptive, and passionate as Maegan.

Maegan is so encouraging, provides constructive criticism, challenges us to do our best and tests our creative limits. She is available for conferences and questions, gives great feedback, and demonstrates a desire to see us succeed. She conducts the class in a fun and open manner.

From Parents

…I wanted to tell you that I thought the play you directed [Antigone] was absolutely riveting! You have quite an eye. I thought [Choragos] and [Antigone] were superb. Nice movement and staging. The story was really intense and you made it easy for an audience to watch such an ‘in your face’ story. Really a great job.

Emma and I got the last tickets to the show [The Matchmaker] last night and were so glad we did. You were fantastic…What a treat for the kids to see, too. Thank you for being such a great role model for the girls, in particular – organized, hard-working, and very creative…nice combo, indeed! CTC [California Theatre Center] is very fortunate to have you heading up Education.
